Italian Hopes Stay Alive


Angelo Recchia raised to 120,000 under the gun only to have Ludovic Lacay three-bet to 250,000 a couple of spots over. The rest of the field got out of the way, Recchia four-bet to 520,000, and Lacay moved all in. Recchia, who is the last Italian remaining in the tournament, called off for 1.58 million and the cards were turned up.

Lacay: {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}
Recchia: {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}

It was a flip, and one that came down in Recchia's favor as the {4-Spades}{9-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{9-Clubs} board failed to help Lacay.
